Children's Exam

Clear and healthy vision is essential to childhood development. Your child should have an initial examination before entering pre-school, and earlier if you notice any behaviors that might indicate a vision problem, such as squinting, rubbing or eye irritation.


The initial child's exam is different from an adult's exam and focuses on vision, eye alignment, and the eye's ability to work together. It is an important part of your child's overall health to ensure that the eyes and vision are developing appropriately.
